The grooming sector is booming, thanks in part to more pet parents discovering that the proper treatment of their companion animal’s skin and coat has an enormous impact on its well-being. Grooming products also are constantly evolving, as advancements in technology have made their way into the pet grooming sector, with new trends and innovations being adapted and updated to meet the needs of pet parents and professional groomers.
For example, whether grooming services are unavailable, too costly or the companion animal just needs an extra groom in between sessions, consumers are always looking for convenient and efficient ways to tend to their pet’s grooming needs at home. Enter the furMe five-tool grooming vacuum kit, which launched earlier this year. Created by Matt Homa, the innovative vacuum kit features a grooming brush, de-shedding brush, electric clippers, a crevice cleaning head and a cleaning brush, all conveniently integrated into one compact device. This cutting-edge product captures 99 percent of bio-waste, including dust, mites, hair, fur, allergens and more.
The pet hair being trimmed or brushed goes into the vacuum’s one-liter container simply by pressing cleaning levers on the brushes to release the hair. The system boasts a stainless-steel fixed blade and an adjustable ceramic blade to tackle the thickest coats while staying 75 percent cooler for consistent performance. According to Homa, many animals not only tolerate the whisper quiet noise level, but thoroughly enjoy the soft suction feeling of the vacuum on their coat like a massage at the spa. The device emits half of the noise level of a modern vacuum at only 48 decibels, making it ideal for sensitive, shy or skittish pets.
“With a furMe, you can keep hair under control while you brush, clip or deshed your pet inside your home,” Homa noted. “Our customers can groom their pets on their kitchen counter, sofa or living room carpet because the hair just gets suctioned right into the vacuum. Many of our customers adore the furMe for their pets that have high anxiety or special needs. The low noise and comfort of being at home takes the stress out of grooming for both the pet and the pet owner.”
